Two Jailed For Stealing Loudspeakers, Fan From Osun Mosque


A citizen of Benin Republic, Mudashiru Nurudeen, and his friend, Rafiu Ismail, have been jailed by an Osun State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Osogbo for allegedly stealing loudspeakers and a wall fan from a mosque.

The convicts, while appearing before Chief Magistrate M. A. Awodele, pleaded guilty to all but one of the charges preferred against them.

The prosecutor, Inspector Jafani Muslim, told the court that the convicts had on December 2, 2018, around 6.30am, broke into the Islaudeen Central Mosque, Alekuwodo, Osogbo, and stole some items.

The stolen items were five core loudspeakers valued at N7,000 and a wall fan valued at N10,000.

The convicts, it was learnt, had before they were caught, robbed a man fabricating pans for baking bread, whom they approached to engage them as workers in his workshop.

Reading his judgement, Magistrate Awodele found Rafiu guilty on two out of the three counts and sentenced him to three months in prison.

Awodele also passed a guilty verdict on Mudashiru, who was sentenced to three months imprisonment on each of the three counts. The terms are to run concurrently from the first day of detention of the convicts.
